Bucket list!
Sep 2020
Had this on my bucket list and it did not disappoint. Would highly recommend to anyone with kids or not to visit this if you have the opportunity. Good walking shoes, water and layer clothing would be a good idea. Loved it!

Great collection and settinh
Dec 2020 • Friends
Take stout shoes and you own water and lunch. There’s a lot of ground to cover and it’s quite undulating pasture type ground at times.

Fabulous collection and lovely setting. We are so lucky the family share this to raise money for charity.

Mind Blowing - Amazing!
Oct 2020
OMG! This is a private farm, the person who owns this farm opens it for free to either Charities or to individuals from time to time over the year. How kind! How remarkable that someone would share this amazing place. My friend was so excited to secure us tickets, she had been trying for two years! We pinched ourselves and you cannot appreciate the sculptures unless you see them in person - they are all incredible. Its gob smacking. Its a blow your mind day out. It took us the full four hours allocated to walk / stroll around and taken in the sculptures. It could be a challenging walk for those that are unfit. We were all so grateful to be able to visit this. Thank you to Mr Gibbs for sharing paradise with us.

Spectacular setting
Feb 2020 • Couples
This destination had been on my bucket list ever since I watched a documentary on Anish Kapoor’s Dismemberment Site 1 which sits proudly into the landscape at Gibbs Farm.

We were fortunate to engage the services of Glen from Art Travel NZ who picked us up at the ferry terminal in Auckland and drove us to the farm. His knowledge on both the farm, the owner Alan Gibbs and each of the sculptures made it a memorable day and we got so much more out of it than doing it on our own.

The opportunity to visit the farm, given it is a private property is mainly when a charitable event is taking place and they agree to open it to the public.

We were overwhelmed at the scale of the sculptures but given the vastness of the property, they perfectly complemented the landscape.

Make sure you wear reasonable walking shoes as there are plenty of hills to tackle.

Acknowledgement to Glen Armstrong at Art Travel for the photographs included in this review too.

Impressive grounds and sculpture
Mar 2020
The Sunday open house was a fundraiser for the Auckland Art Gallery. Lots of people there, but the grounds can hold them. The sculptures are amazing and well worth seeing. Take good walking shoes;there are few benches and seats to sit on. Guides were knowledgeable and helpful. I day you'll remember.

Amazing artworks
Jan 2019
If you ever get a chance to book a space on their open days, do so you will not be disappointed. The huge artworks are amazing and set in some stunning farmland. While the land is hilly, the paths make it doable for everyone and the bonus is seeing farm animals and being able to get close and touch the artwork, not something you can do elsewhere!

Stunning
Aug 2019
Was lucky enough to visit this stunning landscape with a bus trip. Was better than anticipated. Getting up close to giraffes was special.
Sculptures larger than life and amazing. Yes a bit of walking but definitely worth the experience.
Appreciative that Gibbs Farm allow visitors to share this creation.
thank you

Inspiring Large Scale Sculptures in a Beautiful Park Space
Mar 2019 • Friends
The large scale artworks look magnificent in this large beautiful park space. You won't see works of this scale anywhere else permanently in the North Island. It's great day walking around and viewing the works, a great way to get exercise and inspiration.
